Friday Fun: Going Green by Repurposing Legal Reporter Volumes into Book Flasks
The Bender Books folks have "come up with a new twist on the book flask. Rather than mass-produce fake books, or concentrate on the classics, we want to take professional and reference books like legal reporters, medical books, cook books, dictionaries, even parenting books, and repurpose them to conceal Italian glass flasks." To kick start this Brooklyn-based project Bender Books is seeking $3,000 in seed capital for their Booze Books product line. Check out their video promo. Imagine the vendor swag opportunities!
The folks write "Books are expensive, even used books. One Federal Reporter costs $25. Cook books and medical books aren't much cheaper. We are hoping to eventually buy books in bulk to keep the costs down, but for now we make do with the quantities we can afford." I guess they don't realize that they can get all the law reporters they want from libraries free of charge in the Shed West Era. [JH]
Yes, Cheryl, please. Could you pass along the information???

We would LOVE access to free legal reporters if anyone knows of any libraries or law firms looking to get rid of them and are close to New York City. Thanks for the post!

I just saw a posting about a law firm library trying to unload (i.e. giveaway) a boatload of case reporters for free - well it might include cost of postage! This group should get in touch with them.
